        Over Sea, Under Stone

      The First UK Printing published by Jonathan Cape in 1965. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Light pushing at the spine ends and a hint of toning to the text-block. Gilt titling remains bright. Free from erasures, markings and inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. It is the correct first issue with a price of 16s net. Mild edge wear with a few short nicks and a small closed tear to the front upper edge. Minor rubbed area to the lower rear edge. Blue colouring too the spine is lightly faded and the white lettering to the spine is mildly toned. The Margery Gill wrapper design looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. Wonderfully B/W illustrations throughout by Margery Gill. The first title in the acclaimed 'The Dark is Rising' series. Further series titles won both the Newbery Medal, recognizing the year's "most distinguished contribution to American literature for children", and the inaugural Welsh Tir na n-Og Award for English-language books with Welsh background. Contemporary Arthurian fantasy and the struggle between The Light and The Dark. An exceptionally difficult title to find in any condition with most going to libraries. Scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Draeger, 1886-1966

      Paris: Draeger Frères, 1965. Rubbed at the spine and edges, else a tight, very good copy in photo-illustrated wrappers with elongated French flaps. Tattered publisher's bellyband laid in, with crisp original reader reply card.. Square Quarto. First Edition. Unheralded company book by Draeger Fères, the famed French printer known for working with artists such as Matisse and Bill Brandt. In this highly produced book, focus is on the creative commercial art potential of Draeger's photography laboratories. Made apparently for an American market shortly after merging with a New York advertising agency, the book is a tour of mostly European fine art from Impressionism to Pop. However, rather than simply reproduce photos of the artwork, the company's photographers and lab developers labored to create unique, highly manipulated photo images that each pay homage to a particular artist or style. Though created to show off the the creative and design potential of Draeger Fères to potential clients, the book becomes a sort of history of the twentieth century filtered through the lens of an emerging underground psychedelic graphic language. Concludes with tipped in photo illustration of a three year old Nicolas Draeger, extending his arms to the future.

        i Påsen

      Mälmo: Bo Cavefors, 1965. 4to, 27 perforated leaves printed in various colors of ink on the rectos only of various colors of paper stock, tapebound along upper margin, housed with a separate printed title page in a paper shopping bag with printed title label. Artists' book of concrete poetry, published by the audacious Swedish publisher Bo Cavefors on the occasion of Petterson's 1965 exhibit at Galleri Karlsson. The perforated sheets give an air of disposability to these significant concrete compositions, which, presented in a shopping bag, suggests perhaps a critique of consumer culture while also involving the reader as rearranger and participant, and, with the latter, anticipating Steve McCaffery's artists' book Carnival (1973). Important as both an early European artist book and an innovative presentation of concrete poetry, and perhaps overlooked in both narratives due only to its rarity - this is the first example we've handled, and OCLC locates only the National Library of Sweden's copy. Fine; shopping bag near fine, creased and toned, with an old price sticker to front panel.

        Gli esclusi. Fotoreportage da un'istituzione totale

      Fotografie in bianco e nero di Luciano D'Alessandro. Presentazione di Sergio Piro. Grafica di Michele Ketoff. 4to. pp. 120. . Ottimo (Fine). . Prima edizione (First edition). . Nel 1965 D'Alessandro incontra Sergio Piro, direttore del manicomio di Materdomini (Nocera Superiore), docente di psichiatria ed uno dei protagonisti di quello che diventerà il movimento di psichiatria democratica. Piro apre le porte a D'Alessandro che lavora per tre anni alla scoperta della realtà allucinata dell'istituzione totale. A seguito di questa esperienza Piro avviò una comunità terapeutica aperta e nel 1969 fu licenziato sulla scorta dell'aperta denuncia delle immagini prodotte da D'Alessandro. Sempre nello stesso anno il coraggioso Lanfranco Colombo pubblicherà le immagini nelle edizioni de Il Diaframma. Gli esclusi è il primo documento che esce a sostegno della contestazione manicomiale, svelando con immagini fortissime la solitudine del malato mentale e la violenza dell'istituzione.

        The Painted Bird

      London: W.H. Allen, 1965. First British edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to the president of Skidmore College:"For Anne and Joseph Palamountin, with admiration and every best wish Jerzy Kosinski Skidmore, October 28, 1970." Fine in a near fine dust jacket that has a closed tear to the rear panel. The Painted Bird established Jerzy Kosinski as a major literary figure. Kosinski's story follows a dark-haired, olive-skinned boy, abandoned by his parents during World War II, as he wanders alone from one village to another, sometimes hounded and tortured, only rarely sheltered and cared for. Through the juxtaposition of adolescence and the most brutal of adult experiences, Kosinski sums up a Bosch-like world of harrowing excess where senseless violence and untempered hatred are the norm. Through sparse prose and vivid imagery, Kosinski's novel is a story of mythic proportion, even more relevant to today's society than it was upon its original publication. "A powerful blow on the mind because it is so carefully kept within the margins of probability and fact" (Arthur Miller).
